Oklahoma City Pride Alliance Parade & Festival 2021
June 27, 2021Free
TO UNIFY THE LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITIES WITHIN THE OKC METRO AND STATE OF OKLAHOMA THROUGH EVENTS, PROGRAMMING + OPPORTUNITIES THAT FOCUS ON VISIBILITY, HEALTH, CULTURE AND THE BREADTH OF OUR COMMUNITY.
TO CHAMPION, CELEBRATE, ADVANCE AND PROMOTE LGBTQ2S+ ARTISTS, COMMUNITY LEADERS, ACTIVISTS, MUSICIANS, EDUCATORS, HEALTH PROFESSIONALS AND OTHER AMAZING FOLKS WHO MAKE OUR CITY AND STATE A BETTER PLACE.
TO HOST AN ANNUAL PRIDE EVENT FOR THE CITY AND STATE THAT IS NOT ONLY A CELEBRATION – BUT A FESTIVAL FILLED WITH ART, DIVERSITY, EDUCATION, FILM AND MORE.
OKC PRIDE ALLIANCE WAS CONCEIVED DURING A TRANSITION IN THE LOCAL LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITY. IT’S INCEPTION WOULD REFLECT A NEW GENERATION OF ACTIVISM IN OKLAHOMA CITY. A GENERATION READY TO CONTINUE TO THE FIGHT FOR TRUE EQUALITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION – SPECIFICALLY WITHIN THE LGBTQ2S+ COMMUNITY.
OUR GOAL IS TO ENHANCE OKC’S VISIBILITY AS AN INCLUSIVE + DIVERSE CITY THROUGH INTENTIONAL PROGRAMMING THAT GIVES VISIBILITY TO OUR QUEER SCENE BY COLLABORATING WITH AND PROMOTING LOCAL ARTISTS, COALITIONS, PROMOTERS, BUSINESSES, AND NON-PROFITS.
The Parade is June 26th @ 10am
This year Tulsa Pride will collaborate with OKC Pride Alliance. We hope to celebrate pride all along the “Mother Road”. The OKC Pride Alliance Parade will be at 10am on Saturday, June 26th in downtown Oklahoma City, and The Tulsa Pride Parade will be at 6pm in the Art Deco/East Village in downtown Tulsa. We hope this year’s observance will emphasize the importance of healing, unity, and bridge our communities as we remember the Oklahoma tragedy of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
